How To Apply Mascara

this short video will teach you the secrets of applying the mascara the way the professional makeup artists do. Follow these steps for full and thick lashes by applying your mascara properly.

Step 1: Pick Your Brand

The mascara section in any drugstore displays a dizzying array of varieties - from lengthening or thickening to curling or waterproof formulas. The point of mascara is to add definition so pick black.

Step 2: Curl Your Lashes

Apply any eye shadow or eye liner first.

Place the curler as close to the lashline as you can get... without pinching your eyelid. Walk the curler down your lashes as you pump... so you don't get a harsh bend.

Step 3: Brandish Your Wand

Don’t waste mascara by smudging it onto a tissue - just wipe any excess off onto the opening of your mascara bottle.

Start by applying the wand to the base of your outer lash. Draw the wand gently up to the tips. Repeat this step... moving to the middle and inner lash.

For the lucky girls with thick and long lashes, one coat will probably do. For gals with thin and short lashes, let the first coat dry and go for that second coat.

Step 4: The Finishing Touches

Finish by applying one coat to your bottom lashes. This really opens up your eyes. If your lashes are super short, skip the bottom lash.

Gently use a mascara comb to de-clump.

Use your fingernails to remove any bags of mascara that have collected onto the tips of your lashes.

Use a cotton swab with a drop of makeup remover to clean up any smudges.
